Rule 4741-1-18 OAC
As a result of recently enacted legislation and an Executive Order
by the Governor, Rule 4741-1-18
OAC regarding military experience and exemption has been revised
to define "military" and extend the period for submitting
continuing education hours for renewal. Rule 4741-1-18
OAC already waived renewal fees for active duty military veterinarians
and registered veterinary technicians. The rule now reflects the
definition of military and the Board's leniency for continuing
education in compliance with Ohio Revised Code Section 5903.12
and Section 5903.121 http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/5903.121.
The Board currently utilizes on-line renewal for license renewal.
Since licensees on active duty do not have to pay renewal fees,
they cannot complete the online renewal. However, the Board will
accept the renewal application via email at
firstname.lastname@example.org, fax at 614-644-9038, or via mail since
there is no payment involved. The licensee will have to contact
the Board for a paper application to be sent to them or access
the blank form on the Board web site during that specific renewal
document verifying that the licensee is on active duty or was
honorably discharged must be sent with the renewal application.
There is no designated form, but something official indicating
the branch of service and dates of service.
note: A renewal application submission must occur each renewal
cycle to maintain a license. Once a license has been inactive
for four years, the licensee must reapply as if an initial license.
